What is Blight in Fallout 76?
There are two types of Blight that you can get in Fallout 76. One is good while the other is quite serious and requires some medical attention. Blight is a disease that you can contract in Fallout 76 from certain sources. It’s not the most common disease, but it’s one that’s devastating. The other form of rot is a food that can give you some buffs.
How to get infected with Blight
The first type of Blight you might encounter in Fallout 76 is the disease version of it. This disease is not the most common in the Wasteland, but it is very easy to contract. The following enemies can trick you into infecting yourself with the Blight:
- Grafton monster
- mega sloth
- Mirelurk Queen
For an enemy to infect you with the plague, they must be sick, so don’t worry about just catching it from any enemy on the list. Once infected, this disease reduces all of your special stats by one. That means you lose a point in Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, and Luck. Luckily, this disease only affects your character for 30 minutes.
